We took this ferry actually the other way round, ie from Supetar to Split. The journey took an hour or so and the cost for a pedestrian in September 2008 was 30 Kuna.
We found it amazing that this ferry was actually more expensive than the catamaran to Bol which was a longer journey in kilometers.
Daily at 4 pm there is a catamaran that takes you to Bol on the island of Brac. The journey takes about one hour and in September 2008 it cost 22 Kuna.
On the catamaran there were toilets and a small bar with refreshments.
You can buy the ticket at the kiosk on the street near the catamaran landing. Please check the timetable on the website below as there can be seasonal changes.
Check www.jadrolinija.hr for ferry information.
In september you should be able to get good deal on car, locally as well as on the Internet, so i would recommend locally, then you can rent in the morning on the days where you actually need it.
Un Barco que estuvo en la guerra de core con los EEUU en los años cincuenta nos lo vendieron como el famoso dedalo y muchos mas
Creo recordar que no cogia los 15 nudos o cuando lo cogia iba muy forzado

If you're traveling across Europe, a great way to get to Croatia from Italy or to Italy from Croatia is by ship. I used Blue Line to get from Split to Ancona, Italy. The trip lasted throughout the night and was very comfortable. On the ship there was a restaurant, bar, casino and much more. At the time (2003) I paid a little over a hundred euros for a one way ticket. This included a cabin.
Jadrolinija has several lines daily between Split and the surrounding islands. For example:
Split - Supetar
Split - Stari Grad
Split - Vis
Split - Vela Luka
One-way ticket for one person from Split to Hvar costs 35 KN.
See details from the Jadrolinija webpage.
This kind of ferry-boat is connecting Split and middle Dalmatian islands of Brac, Hvar, Vis, Lastovo and further south to Korcula and the town of Dubrovnik. At the same time you can reach northern Adriatic's islands and the town of Rijeka.
In case you're not traveling by car, then I suggest you to take the speed boats gto the islnds, it cost more of course but you'll safe your time and get there more quickier.
The easiest way to reach the town of Split is by airplaine. Also, you can reach it by train, bus, ferry-boat, car...
The port of Split is the main ferry connection to the nearby Dalmatian's islands and across the sea to Ancona and Pescara in Italy. It is, however, usualy overcrowded by cars and passegers in the high summer season. If traveling to the islands at that time be patience, the same happens in whole the Mediterranean area.
We took an overnight ferry from Ancona to Split. Getting onto the ferry was a trip. In retrospect, it was a humorous experience but at the time we were a little frazzled. We were clueless as to how to check in and go through passport control. And then I had all these ferry workers yelling at me in Italian while maneuvering the car onto the ferry. I 'look' italian and they must have thought that I was just very stupid.
Well anyway, the simple instructions for the clueless.
1. park car in line
2. check-in at the ticket office
3. fill out passport control forms and get in line
4. arrange your baggage for easy access while waiting for the ferry to load (they pack the cars tight and it can be difficult to access the trunk).
Numerous ferries connect Split with the nearby Adriatic islands (Hvar, Brac, Vis, Lastovo etc) and there is a coastal ferry service between the city and Rijeka to the north and Dubrovnik to the south. There are also daily ferries in the summer months (and slightly less frequent during the winter) between Split and Ancona in Italy.
We used the overnight ferry to get from Ancona to Split. Being four females travelling together we decided to rent a cabin which I think was the best thing we could have done. The cost was not too bad and we all had a good rest so that we could start exploring early morning when we landed in Split.
